Reported by EdSurge, Marist College offers Online Teaching Workshops for their on-campus faculty to become more comfortable with the technology and pedagogical best practices of online instruction.
From first assessing the faculty’s online skillsets, and then personalizing their training and development workshops to shrink their learning curve, Marist is committed to online faculty support.
The takeaway? Teaching online and teaching face-to-face are very different beasts. Just because your on-campus faculty are subject matter experts does not necessarily mean they’re ready to translate that knowledge to online instruction. If you want your on-campus faculty to be effective online instructors, training is essential. So be proactive with it.
May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
